What is Mayadere?

How much do you know about Mayadere? This page will teach you everything you need to know.

The Mayadere (まやデレ) type refers to a character who is often a dangerous antagonist of a series, but switches sides after falling in love with another character. The character may remain deadly and unpredictable for the protagonist or other main character in the Anime or Manga.

I do not know the origins of the word Mayadere, as Maya doesn’t translate into anything.

And that should answer the question “What is Mayadere?” You can find more information on subcultures and terms just like this in my growing Otaku Encyclopedia, including all other -Dere types!
